    The New Firefox has arrived

    For those of you using Firefox, Firefox Quantum has arrived.

    It's been entirely rewritten in a new programming language. And it IS fast, noticeably faster than before.
    It also uses far less memory, especially compared to Google Chrome.

    The bad news: loads of addons are not compatible (or not yet) with the new version.

    Included among the ones that are not compatible are three that I used:
    - NoScript (arguably the most used script blocker on FF)
    - FB Purity: an addon that blocks ads and game requests etc. on Facebook.
    - a status bar addon.

    Firefox suggests installing uMatrix as an alternative to NoScript, but it is an addon for more advanced users, and there is hardly any documentation available.
    An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

    aka Firefox v57 on my WIN10 desktop version.
    Not sure yet, if it is available for my Android browser.
